I think this is right (VM1, VM2 same availability set = Yes, Probe1.htm on VM1 and VM2, LB1 with balance between them = Yes, If rule 1 deleted, LB1 will blance all requests between VM1 and VM2 on all ports = No) based on: 1) Basic SKU doesn't allow flexibility in Availability Sets https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/load-balancer/concepts-limitations#skus 2) Rule1 health probe looks for /Probe1.htm - if it is present on both VMs, LB1 will balance between them 3) https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/azure/load-balancer/load-balancer-custom-probe-overview - Basic SKU, Probe down behaviour = All probes down, all TCP flows expire.

Why you infer VM1 and VM2 are in the same Availability Set? What prevents them from being Single VMs? The first statement is something we can't actually assess with certainty from the info that's given.

In fact, you are right. BackEnd pools for Basic SKU LBs require that multiple VMs be in an Availability Set. We can deploy ONE VM that's not in an Availability Set, but not a second one. That's the error I got when trying that: "All of the selected Virtual Machines have to be in one Availability Set or only one Virtual Machine can be selected" Standard SKU LBs do not have that limitation (checked that too), but since the one in the question is a Basic SKU LB, the backend VMs must be in the same Availability Set. Therefore, second statement is TRUE.

The answer to first question should be No. I was able to create a "basic" sku load balancer using 2 VMs that are not in any Availability sets. Maybe the basic sku does not allow VMs from two different Availability sets to be added but that does not mean that VMs have to be in the same Availability sets. They might have no Availability sets associated.

more accurate statement would be that "Both VMs belong to the same Availability set or do not belong to any availability set"

I stand corrected. The VMs must be in same Availability sets. You can add VMs that way I described but when you try to add a rule, it fails with this error -------- { "status": "Failed", "error": { "code": "ReferencedVMsDontBelongToSameAvailabilitySet", "message": "Not all Virtual Machines vm1,vm2 indirectly referenced by the Load Balancer lb_basic1 belong to the same availability set.", "details": [] } }

Explanation for the last answer (No is correct) : "If all probes for all instances in a backend pool fail, no new flows will be sent to the backend pool. Standard Load Balancer will permit established TCP flows to continue. Basic Load Balancer will terminate all existing TCP flows to the backend pool. Load Balancer is a pass through service (does not terminate TCP connections) and the flow is always between the client and the VM's guest OS and application. A pool with all probes down will cause a frontend to not respond to TCP connection open attempts (SYN) as there is no healthy backend endpoint to receive the flow and respond with an SYN-ACK." -> https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/azure/load-balancer/load-balancer-custom-probe-overview#tcp-connections

The basic loadbalancer can have only VMs from a VMSS or a single VM. But why are we equating availability set to Scale Set for the first question? VM1/VM2 are in same scale set and not same availability set.

Basic vs Standard regarding availibility sets???: The Standard Tier scale up a service out across 3 zones in a single region for a 99.99 percent service level agreement or SLA. The Basic Tier is limited to non-availability zone deployments. https://dynalearntech.com/learning-the-difference-between-basic-and-standard-azure-load-balancers.html

FrancisFerreira

It does. In fact, if we want to have more than one VM load-balanced, they must be in an Availability Set (or Scale Set). In a Standard SKU LB, we can have multiple standalone VMs that are not in an Availability Set, however this setup is not allowed in Basic SKU LBs.
